Books Unbound – Elizabeth Stoddard and the 1860s, Part Three: Absence

Play

Books Unbound resumes the summer series “Elizabeth Stoddard and the 1860s” after an Independence Day break, with two short stories by this lesser-known innovator in American women’s fiction. Julianna Dailey reads “One of the Days of My Life” (1865), a first-person story that seems like thinly veiled autobiography about the death of a sister and the bond to place. Stoddard lost her own sister and mother within six months of each other when she was twenty-five.

One of Stoddard’s most anthologized stories, “Lemorne versus Huell” (1863) is another first-person story, about a naive young woman who is courted for reasons she grasps only too late. Mary Pat Lynch reads. (The extended podcast contains the complete story; in the broadcast series, the story will continue next week.)

This episode was written, produced, and edited by Cynthia Wolfe, with recording assistance from Heather Perry, who hosts. The announcer is Jack Hanek.

Special music comes from Johannes Brahms, Piano Quintet in F Minor (1865), performed by Jorja Fleezanis, Wu Han, Ian Swensen, Ralph Kirshbaum, and Cynthia Phelps, and recorded live at the Music@Menlo chamber music festival in 2005, and from the Adagio movement of Brahms’ Piano Trio in B Major, performed by the Beaux Arts Trio.

“Elizabeth Stoddard and the 1860s” continues next week with her novel Two Men.
